Greetings,  
 
There's a great deal yet to be learned about ZIKV. *If* both Aedes and Culex spp. are vectors, then it's possible that other genera may be vectors as well. WNv, a similar flavivirus that also targets the nervous system, has been found by the CDC in over 50 spp. of mosquitoes in the US: http://www.cdc.gov/westnile/resources/pdfs/mosquitospecies1999-2012.pdf  
 
The large number of ZIKV cases in Florida will probably give us the best picture of what may happen in the rest of the country: https://twitter.com/wsvn/status/702988221416919040
